FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Middletown police took a man with distinct facial tattoos into custody Thursday afternoon, deputies say.

Warren County deputies were called to Mentz Road in Franklin Township on the Fourth of July for a vehicle theft. When they arrived, people at the scene said Ebb Duhamel was inside the home threatening others with a gun. Authorities said Duhamel would not surrender, despite attempts made by the county's Tactical Response Team.

When authorities entered the home, Duhamel was not there, having somehow escaped on foot.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office asked for the public assistance in locating Duhamel, a 30-year-old white male, about 6 feet tall weighing 165 lbs. He was wanted for aggravated menacing, inducing panic and violation of a TPO.

Authorities were able to track Duhamel down Thursday. He was taken to the Middletown Jail. FOX19 will update this story when details of Duhamel's apprehension are released.
